Hosted by Brook Food at their test bakery, bakery school and equipment showroom near Taunton, Somerset, BATCH: South West offers professional bakers, ‘semi-pro’ microbakers and homebakers the opportunity to hear and learn from Real Bread experts. Guests will have plenty of time for chatting and picking each other’s brains over a long lunch.
The morning will consist of short talks, Q&A and a panel discussion, followed by an afternoon of hands-on and knowledge-based workshops. After the main event, there will be an optional outdoor evening social, including a hog roast and veggie feast around the bonfire, with live music and bar.
Full details will be announced soon, but the first speakers to be confirmed are:
The daytime event will run from 1100 -1730 (with registration from 1030-1050) and the evening event from 1800-2200.
A very limited number of discounted early bird tickets are available now, one per paid-up Campaign supporter.
Supporters can find the code for the hidden discount tickets by logging in to the Real Bread Campaign supporters’ page.
To buy a discounted ticket using the code click the ‘tickets’ button on the Eventbrite ticketing page and select ‘enter promotional code’.
Any profits from the event will go to the Real Bread Campaign, part of the food and farming charity Sustain.
